When it comes to Republican politics, no name better represents the “establishment” than the Bush family.

Following Ted Cruz’s win in Wisconsin, rival Donald Trump pushed the idea that Cruz is little more than a tool for the establishment and a Trump spokesperson followed up on that narrative Wednesday by saying “Bush people” are running the Texas senator’s campaign.

“The Bush people are now running Sen. Cruz’s campaign; Neil Bush, who’s spent millions of dollars invested with Common Core, and all of these other special interest groups like Goldman Sachs, like hedge fund managers,” Trump’s spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told Fox News.

“This is going to be a very serious problem if Sen. Cruz continues to go down this path and then neither Trump or Cruz becomes the nominee,” she added.

Neil Bush, the brother of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, joined Cruz’s finance team last month.

The Trump campaign is charging ahead with the belief that the Republican establishment is planning to “steal the nomination” from Trump at the Republican National Convention, and saying Cruz is being used as a “Trojan horse” in pulling off the feat.

“Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet— he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump,” the campaign said in a statement released Tuesday night.

Pierson said Cruz can’t win “on his own merits” and insisted the establishment won’t support him at a contested convention.

“When you have the establishment backing you so reluctantly to the point to where you have people endorsing you that said that you would get murdered on the Senate floor and nobody would care, and the difference between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is being stabbed or shot, their loyalty is not with Sen. Cruz,” she said.

Pierson was referring to past comments made by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who now backs Cruz.
